Greetings from the Office of Safety and Security


View of UMPI’s campus and parking lots.

My name is Fred Thomas and I’m the Director of Safety and Security on campus. On behalf of the Security personnel, I would like to personally welcome you to the University of Maine at Presque Isle.  Our staff of security officers are tasked with enforcing the parking regulations on campus and in addition we monitor and patrol the campus to ensure your security and safety. We have a “Safety Walk” program that is available for students, faculty and staff anytime day or evening by calling 760-2199. If for any reason you feel unsafe, do not hesitate to call us and we will walk with you to your vehicle or Residence Hall.

All vehicles are required to have a parking decal in order to park on campus.  Parking decals for the 2019-2020 academic year are available at our office located in Emerson Annex or at the Student Financial Services office located on the second floor of Preble Hall.  Be sure to fill out the vehicle registration form online, located on the Security web page, or in person at either Emerson Annex or at Student Financial Services.  Cost of the parking decals will remain the same this year: $10 for the first vehicle and $2 for each additional vehicle.

There are several items of interest on the Security web page that may be helpful to everyone. We have up-to-date information on the university’s’ Clery Report, how to react to an “Active Shooter” incident and a registration form that allows both students and faculty/staff to register their valuables, such as cell phones, computers, cameras or any other personal items.

Please don’t hesitate to stop by or call our office if you have any problems, complaints or concerns about safety or security on campus.  We can be reached at 768-9580.  Once again, welcome and I hope to see all of you very soon.  Enjoy your year.
